2003 Mazda 6 i 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


You simply cannot go wrong with the Mazda 6i. It's hands down the best car I've ever owned. I get over 30 mpg combined and the 4 cyl 160 hp engine has plenty of pep. I purchased the car off lease with 33K miles and now am close to 100K and have had only minor mechanical issue. The drive belt tensioner has gone bad twice (makes a rattle at low idle, common problem), it cost me $60 and 30 minutes of my time to replace both times. The O2 sensor went bad and it cost me $80 and 30 minutes of my time to replace. Oil changes are a snap and if you put Yokohama tires on this car it rides like a dream. My only complaint is the turning radius, it's horrible. I can live with that minor annoyance

Best Features

Reliability, gas mileage, smooth ride w/Yokohama tires, peppy engine.

Worst Features

Better turning radius and a clip to prevent the drivers seat belt from getting caught on the power seat controls which moves the seat position whenever you try to put on the seatbelt.
